Main Site Documentation

Hyperlinks open in same tab - please make them open in separate


#1

Is it possible to open external links in a separate window?


#2

No need for a change to the site.

If you’re on desktop, just press the Ctrl key then click the link. On a mobile device, tap and hold the link, and one of the options should be to open in a new tab.


#3

If this is not a feature in the discourse platform, and I do not think it is, then we can’t fix it.


#4

Thanks Mr Hammer for that lesson in browsers :smile: :wink: Yep I get that, I know how to do that, but when you expect the site to handle it (as per before) it’s a hard lesson to unlearn :slight_smile: I’m fine if it doesn’t let that be tweaked, but if it can be changed in the discourse settings I know I for one would appreciate it.


#5

There is a setting for this.


#6

Done, please try.


#7

not sure it worked - on existing URLs anyway. Test a new link to see if that works better/differently… Nope, confirmed, still behaves the same for me


#8

This is why (it is in your profile)


#9

ha - it’s ME who needs to make a change ! :slight_smile: Yup, works for me :slight_smile: :smile: :blush:

Accepting change can be hard as we age.
